  1. Thank you Kristen for all you do to empower women! Great episode. I truly believe that our society needs to be more in tune with the sacred feminine and with that respect and be in awe of the power of birth. One thing I disagree with you on – you saying you are not a feminist. “Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” GD Anderson

  2. Thank you for addressing this challenging topic! I agree that everyone involved in the birth process needs to be treated with care, respect, and dignity, regardless of how they identify their own gender. And I appreciate that you are also underscoring that birth is a powerful, sacred part of the feminine experience that cannot be experienced by someone who is not female. This is a woman’s experience that we need to maintain women at the core of this issue.
